My @garmin watch had finally broken down and was sent off for repairs. On my #tbt run last weekend in #southport , I had no way to track my time, distance, pace, or direction. While an inconvenience, it reminded me of two reasons why I took up running in the first place: --- 1) Freedom. I had no schedules, plans, alerts or interruptions except for time to clear my mind, become more fit, and to run. --- 2) Exploration. Discovering an area by running is the best way to quickly and fully immerse yourself in a new environment, by far. --- Let your inconveniences become your times for reflection. Shout out to @nikkiboyd_ for the photos at Southport and #crosbybeach --- Check out the link in my bio to support Parkinson's research! The #nycmarathon is only a few months away!!
We had a very blistery walk down #CrosbyBeach , featuring a load of metal sculptures looking out to sea. #beach #coast #seaside #crosby #Liverpool #england #travel #tourism #sculpture

Got up extra early this morning so I could walk along the beach and explore ‘Another Place’ by Antony Gormley on Crosby Beach in Liverpool. Absolutely mesmerising installation and I had the whole beach to myself, other than a lone runner, was breathtaking. You can see the sky getting lighter as I walk along the beach... #antonygormley #crosbybeach #liverpool #overnightworktrip

A 12 km de #Liverpool nos encontramos con la playa #Crosby y hay repartidas por toda la playa más de doscientas esculturas de hierro de forma humana de hombre, que quedan sumergidas por las mareas y se pueden ver cuando hay bajamar. La obra maestra es del escultor Antony Gormley y se denomina Another Place #alejama66 #amoviajar ❤️ #instaday #liverpool #inglaterra #anotherplace #crosbybeach #viajarcuesteloquecueste

Happy accidents! Using film is unreliable. Sometimes, there are errors. Sometimes, the errors are way more interesting than you’d ever hoped for! I can’t take the credit for this, but I’m still so happy with it.

In the UK, there is a strip of sand about 2 miles long. There are no arcades or Kiss Me Qwik hats. No rugged cliffs or stunning coves. No quaint tea rooms or bespoke art galleries. No surf or cobbled streets. It does however have portaloos (and sometimes the lock works without inserting 20p), a hot food and ice cream you van and 100 Iron Men created in the image of Anthony Gormley randomly dotted the length of this land. I am not a religious person and the closest I would get to being a hippy is that I have done tye-die and I recycled before the council provided the bins but , to me, there is something indescribably spiritual about this place. There is no doubt that the presence of the sculptures has an influence on this but even without them there is something, which I can’t put my finger on that makes this place my “go to place”. It is not beautiful, scenic or attractive for sunbathing or to wander barefoot in the waves. As you look out from the concrete steps that run from the concrete ‘promenade’ (attractive eh?) and look to the left you can see the skyline of nearby Liverpool and in the foreground, large industrial cranes and warehouses. However, if you turn your gaze out to sea you will see the wind turbines which, along with the incoming and outgoing of the tide, have a rhythm as they steadily turn in the breeze. The climate along this stretch of coast, with the exception of the past couple of months, is usually blustery to say the least. Venturing out for a sunset, early into the New Year, is not for the fainthearted and if I want company, this comes at the price of a hot chocolate. That said, for me, this is the best time of day to be in this special place. The mixtures of red and orange and dark night are strangely hypnotic. I am not alone in feeling this and you would never be in solitude as others too feel that it is bizarrely an almost sacred place. But rather than feel that other people intrude on this place, I want to share in my fondness and enthusiasm for it. And to add weight to this, someone in the Home Office agrees with me as it features inside the pages of a British passport! #crosbybeach #seftoncoast #anthonygormleyanotherplace

An army of iron statues look out to sea from Crosby Beach. Visit this surreal, haunting artwork by Antony Gormley, and explore its unique coastline. About 6 miles (9.5km) north of central Liverpool is Crosby Beach. Here you’ll find the striking public artwork Another Place, by world-famous British artist Antony Gormley. The work consists of 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread over 2 miles (3km) of lovely coastline. They reach approximately 0.6 miles (1km) out to sea, being increasingly submerged and revealed as the tide comes in and goes out. Each figure weighs 650kg (0.7 ton) and is made from casts of the artist’s own body. To see them all together is an impressive sight. The initial plan was for the work to keep moving to different sites (it has already lived in Germany, Norway and Belgium), but upon arriving here it was quickly agreed that the iron men had found their true home. . . #art #crosby #liverpool #merseyside #ironfigures #ironstatues #antonygormley #antonygormleysculptures #figures #uk #statues #water #statue #artist #nofilter #artoninstagram #liverpoolart #antonygormleysanotherplace #gormleystatues #crosbybeach #crosbybeachstatues #crosbybeachliverpool #figure @liverpoolcitycouncil @discoverliverpool @discovercrosby

A solitary statue, gazing out to sea. How I feel on most days, alone and overwhelmed. But it's important to recognise the difference between being lonely and being alone. You can be surrounded by people, be one of a 100 in a crowd and still feel lonely. In solitude, you learn about yourself and your interactions with the world around you. And in that silent contemplation, you realise that you're never really ever alone. You are a part of the universe, and the universe is a part of you.

Spot the art! Popped to see the Anthony Gormley piece Another Place on Crosby beach but the tide was in. . . . . . #anthonygormley #anotherplace #crosbybeach #liverpool #badtiming #sitespecificart
Life begins everyday, not at 40, or 50, or 60! Why wait? People who bounce up in the morning full of excitement and gratitude annoy me, because I’m not there yet. So following the advice of my inspirational calendar this month, I’m holding the mirror up to myself and seeing all the excuses I wake up with for not doing something that will change my mood, and quite possibly my life. Morning beach runs with the pooch remind me that you have to draw your line in the sand, decide what you are prepared to put up with from yourself and expect better. There is no change without challenge. Life begins everyday, begin it right #beachlifephilosophy #runningyogi #movingmeditation
Managed a little haul today after last nights storm and found my dark green for my Christmas makes. Think ive found my mojo again 😀 #seaglass #afterthestorm #planningchristmas #feelingrelaxed #crosby #crosbybeach #clearedthecobwebs #emeraldbutterflydesigns
SHOUT: @hoylakelifeboat hovercraft launched on service yesterday evening after being tasked by UK Coastguard to two quad bikers stuck in the mud on #Crosby beach, near to the Coastguard Station. The hovercraft arrived on scene and waited with the casualties and HM Coastguard Crosby at a safe location, as the tide was due to flood, until a tractor that the casualties had arranged was able to reach them. Wirral Coastguard Rescue Team were also on scene to give support. The quad bikes were extracted from the mud and having made sure that the casualties were safely ashore, the hovercraft returned to station #hoylake #lifeboat #hoylakelifeboat #hoylakehovercaft #hoylakernli #rnli #hovercraft #rnlihovercraft #wirral #merseyside #crosbybeach #mudrescue #quadbike #quadbikes
Antony Gormley’s 100 cast-iron life size statues which spread over 2 miles and reach about 0.6 miles out to sea on Crosby Beach revealed when the tide comes in and out. Apparently a replica of his actual body......quite an eerie site early in the morning! #anotherplace #antonygormley #crosbybeach #liverpool
My little salty sea dog went back down to London today, but we had a lovely trip back to Crosby beach yesterday for one last adventure. See you in a month, Hawley! ❤️🐗🌊⛱️
